Offers hands-on material for integrating role plays, simulations, debates, speeches, and presentations in the ESL classroom. Utilizing these deliberative techniques is a proven approach for improving critical thinking and cultural/social skills while teaching language skills. Using deliberative techniques forces students to abandon translating word for word and to internalize English. Students think, process, and analyze in English and put language to use. 

Nancy Claxton, Ed.D., has written textbooks, curriculum, and educational materials for various organizations, including Ministries of Education, the United Nations, and the Open Society Institute.

Marcin Zaleski has taught English as a foreign language for eight years. Working with the International Debate Education Association, he also has conducted trainings in debate and communication for teachers in over 30 countries.
